How to Lead Someone to Jesus Christ

How to Lead Someone to Jesus Christ

 

When someone wants to receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, pray the following prayer with them:

Ask them to pray sentence by sentence after you. They must be sincere and mean what they say with all their heart. “Dear God, I come to you as a sinner, knowing I need your forgiveness and that I can’t save myself. I thank you so much for loving me that you sent your Son, Jesus, to die for me. Lord Jesus Christ, I believe you rose again from the dead and are alive to save me now. I receive you as my Saviour and make you Lord of my life. I repent of my sin and I’m sorry for neglecting you in the past. That stops right now. Please forgive all my sin and give me your gift of eternal life. Thank you for hearing my prayer. From now on, I’ll do my best to follow and serve you.”

Now give them the assurance from God’s Word that Jesus has come into their life (in the person of the Holy Spirit); that he has cleansed their sin and has given them God’s gift of eternal life because His word says so! Urge them not to rely on their feelings, which can so easily change. It could be that they felt nothing at all. God’s Word is their reassurance that He has heard and answered their prayer.

Let them read the following scriptures aloud in your presence: 

  • All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. (John 6:37)

  • Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12)

  • “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. (John 5:24)

  • Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. (John 6:47) 

  • And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.( 1 John 5:11-13 )

Urge them now to find a fellowship with other true believers in Jesus and attend church regularly.
